Beyoncé and JAY-Z looked drunk in love as they celebrated her birthday with cake in Sardinia
The pop powerhouse turned 37 while vacationing on the resort island off the coast of Italy. She and Jay, who marked their 10th wedding anniversary earlier this year, were spotted sharing a loving embrace as they strolled in the sun. The birthday queen donned an oversized straw hat and a pink two-piece skirt and crop top ensemble — accessorized with red cat-eye sunglasses and a gold belly chain — while the rap mogul opted for a simple graphic t-shirt and striped white pants.
Together they spent the day taking in views of the azure blue water, lounging on a luxurious yacht and, of course, having (presumably vegan-friendly) cake!
Beyoncé posted romantic snaps of her big day on Instagram. One image featured Jay capturing the cake cutting with a video taken on his iPhone — tangled cord and all. Megastar super-couples — they’re just like us!
She captioned the photo with an emotional message to her loyal Beyhive fans, reflecting on her journey throughout the last year. It was the same note she shared to her website earlier under the title “Your Bitch at 36.”
“At 36, I became a mother of three,” the Grammy winner began. “I breastfed twins. I renewed vows with my husband of ten years.”
“I came back home to the stage to do Coachella, after pregnancy. Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything is Love. And we’ve been touring with our whole family around the world, and loving it,” she shared.
She closed out the note with gratitude, writing, “This year has been monumental for me. I thank God for everyone in my life. Thank you for all the positivity and for the beautiful birthday wishes. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn from my past, living in the present and surrendering to the future.”
Equally enthused about Beyoncé’s birthday was her mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, who celebrated by posting a picture of her daughter as a 4-month-old baby. The famous grandmother, 64, captioned the photo, “Happy Birthday to the nicest, owner of the most beautiful, generous, loving hearts ever !!!! Brilliant too! Always thinking, planning, analyzing, strategizing, how you can make everything you touch better!”
She continued, “Sometimes I can’t believe out of all the incredible people in the world I was chosen by God to be your mom!” said the mother of two, who is also the proud parent of Solange Knowles.
“The day that you and your sister entered this world were the two best days of my life, hands down!! It is a privilege to have carried you two in this body. … No one deserves it more!” Knowles Lawson concluded, along with red heart emojis and bee emojis.
